Which mascara is best?

Choosing the best mascara
Choosing the best mascara

So the other week I thought I would go through my eyeliners to find the best one in my battle of the eyeliners post, and now I'm doing a mascara version! I hate trying new mascaras, it's just not exciting. I mean how much more fun is it to try a new lipstick or eyeshadow palette. It's rare you'll get a 'oo your mascara looks lovely today' comment, but without it you also feel like your eyes are the size of a pea. So it's still an essential!

Choosing the best mascara

These 5 are the ones I have in my make up drawers currently, there is usually a few more but there hasn't been any that grabbed my eye for a while now. Two are my absolute holy grails, one which you could probably guess cause it's everyone else's too.. predictable! 

Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara* £8.99 - I still can't quite make my mind up about this, I like it and how it thickens my lashes. But, I also don't like how wet it is. I really like dry mascaras for some reason, they always seem to apply so nicely. I obviously know that is the whole point in this mascara, so if you love brand new mascaras this is right up your street.

Wunderextensions Lash Extension Mascara £19.95 - I've had a few of these mascaras now and I love it more and more each time I use it. It gives your lashes volume but also adds noticeable length, plus it's twice as amazing when it's drier! It may not be the cheapest but it's definitely worth its price tag!

Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara £7.99 - This one is also pretty on par with the Wunderextensions one, but has a more purse friendly price. It doesn't add as much length but it is noticeable enough to get comments on it from my work bunch! 

Benefit Rollerlash £20.50 - This is something I've also purchased a few times, it evens out all your lashes, curls them and adds length. If you're a be all end all volume lover, this one probably isn't up your street. But for me it adds perfect length and if I want the 'volume' look I'll just add a flick of liner on my lid instead. 

Maybelline Lash Sensational £7.99 - This is my only another plastic bristled brush like the Benefit one, but it doesn't have the same curl effect. The brush has two sides; longer comb to even out all your lashes, smaller comb for your lower lashes and to add any volume. I do love the effect of this mascara but it is a total b*tch to get off and comes off in weird flakes! If you're a pro at mascara removal this is fab!

What is your favourite mascara, do you have any you would recommend?

Change of season skin care

Change of season skin care needs

I really hate this time of year for skin care, I literally hate taking care of my skin.. ridiculous really when it's something I probably should take care of. But the transition from Winter to Spring makes me skin soooo dry. Fake tan probably doesn't help matters but I have just switched to a oil fake tan so lets see if that helps, but thats for another post.

Battle of the liquid eyeliners

My favourite liquid eyeliners
My favourite liquid eyeliners

Eyeliners have always been a struggle for me, I am forever looking for one that actually does what it says.. or doesn't dry up after 1 use. Apparently when I was an emo it didn't matter what a liquid liner was like cause I coloured my whole eyelid in it, least then I didn't have to try and perfect a cat flick without it sensing my fear. It does actually sense your fear, I'm not even kidding.

I'm still trying to find the 'best' liner, but I think I have found one or two I will continue to keep buying until that one is ever found. Hence the if.
